ok bass players, i just picked this up dirt cheap, and there's not a brand name anywhere on it. the previous owner sanded and painted it (and did a rotten job too). everything except the jack to plug it in is in good working order - and that piece just needs a quick resolder. the pups are rusted on the poles and there are screws missing from the bridge, but that's easy enough to spiff up. most importantly, the bass sounds killer! i cannot believe the growl and bite that this thing has. as far as i can tell, it's made of wood (no carbon, etc.), neck through (or perhaps set, but there's no evidence of any bolts), single truss rod, rosewood board, painted white before the current hack job... body is shaped like a cort , but there are no brand names indicated anywhere on the bridge or in the electronics cavity. previous owner says it may be as much as 20 years old. from the sound, i'd swear it was one of geddy's old steinies any guesses as to what this is?
